integrated circuit Carrier - 1963
TI number: G00097

This carrier was designed and put into production use in 1963. It was the standard means of handling completed IC's in flatpacks for testing, burning in and shipping.

This item was part of the original S/B Lobby display. Initially IC's were shipped in the carriers and clipped out by the customer for board mounting. Subsequently, carriers became available that permitted clipped devices to be tested. TI shipped devices in either carrier per customer instructions. Eventually, the Mech-Pak was phased out.
